Anyone have comments on how other small, local business have faired during the construction? Honestly I'm not impressed with the change. Great, we have wider sidewalks and there'll be a few trees. Oh, and let me not forget those fancy light posts going up. About the only thing wider sidewalks do for me is, hopefully, give me some more room to get around the slow walkers. Sure, trees are nice, but its not like I can hang out on the ave to enjoy them. City law prohibits any sitting on University Way between specific hours. There also isn't a lot of cafes or business with an open porch on the Ave side that would allow me to take in the wonderful view the city has built.
Is the construction on the Ave (University Way) a Good Thing?
